help


I have looked in the forums for a answer to this problem with no fix.  I'm using PCBSD 8.0 64 bit, and my caps lock will not work on my keyboard. ( 105 key iMicro usb ) The caps work fine in the live dvd, but when i installed PCBDS it will not work, the strange thing is if i logout it works fine until i get back to the desktop. My keyboard runs through a KVM switch, i have ran a lot of linux os's with no problems at all. Thanks,
Mark

Not that it helps but I have similar issues on 8.0/i386 running through 
a Avocent Switchview MM2.

The problem shows as
ukbd_set_leds_callback:696: error=USB_ERR_STALLED
in the log. The only remedy that works is to connect the mouse and 
keyboard direct to the cpu.

Does that make a difference mark?

Also another thing to check is your keyboard settings being used. During 
the install did you change the keyboard model / layout at all, and did 
it stop the caps from working when doing so?

There seems to be a bit of a problem with USB-HIDs under FreeBSD - at
least we are not as far as Linux is. I have a Razor Copperhead[1] on one
of my machines. Using it in Kombination with a Model-M causes slight
problems because it isn't recognized as a mouse. This seems to be true
for most mice that allow you to run macros, since they (also) identify
themselves as keyboards.

This also applies to PC-BSD 8 where the installer is designed to be used
with a mouse.

Linux (I've tried Ubuntu and Suse) gets that right without any help.

Regards,
Chris

[1] Yeah, I know, it sucks, but that's not the issue here. :-)

The entire USB stack is brand new in FreeBSD 8, so I would imagine it'll 
take a release or two to get all those things ironed out. If you or 
anybody else run into USB devices which aren't identified properly, 
please file a PR report with the BSD guys, or report it to the USB 
mailing lists, so they can get it fixed up for 8.1 :)

Kompozer solved

Hi,

I mailed the list to inform Kompozer did not work.
Now it does.

Open Terminal

su
password
portsnap fetch && portsnap update
cd /usr/ports/www/kompozer
make install clean

Works like charm!

Kernel configuration

Greetings,

Is it just me or the kernel configuration file is not present in

http://trac.pcbsd.org/browser/pcbsd/branches/8.0/system-overlay/usr/PCBSD/conf

I only see a file name PCBSD with partial kernel configuration...

Best,
Quyen

Resetting display resolution - PC-BSD 8.0

I have recently  done a fresh install of PC-BSD  on a new Dell
Zino  mini desktop,  set in  a triple  boot mode  with Win-XP,
Linux (Ubuntu 9.10), and PC-BSD 8.0.

During the first  run, when prompted for  monitor resolution I
had  set it  to 1440x900  and things  seemed to  run smoothly.
Thereafter  on my  first  reboot,  the /etc/X11/xorg.conf  got
automatically  rewritten, and  I  am getting  a resolution  of
1024x768 only with depth of 16  bit, which makes the fonts and
program windows a bit chunky on my 17" monitor.

I tried to manually set xorg.conf to 1440x900 and 32 bit depth
(as used with  the other two OSs), but during  reboot, a fresh
xorg.conf is being written. The video driver used by PC-BSD is
"vesa", 1024x768 with depth of 16.

I went through the KDE Menu:

System ->Display and the only options I get there is
1024x768 with a refresh of "auto"

Is there any way I can increase the desktop resolution ?

Thanks,

Bish

Looks silly, replying to my own post, but this is just to give
a completion report.

What surprises  me is the  fact the  Xorg under Ubuntu  in the
same box  gives me  an auto-detected option  which works  at a
higher resolution/  depth combination, whereas that  of PC-BSD
goes on to default 1024x768 with 16 bit depth.

I did  try setting it to  1440x900 at 24 bit  colour depth. It
ran for that session, but reset  on reboot. Then I did a whole
lot of trial and error to  find that 1440x900 at 16 bit colour
depth was retaining.  The rest was a matter of  going down the
resolution ladder  to get an  optimal combo of 24  bit colour.
That, I got at 1280x960,  and things are definitely better now
.. This is  holding on across reboots, and I  did not have to
take the manual route.

So basically,  it is a matter  of Option 7 boot,  and then get
the appropriate resolution which holds across a reboot.
